The last festival of the Nordic Anthropological Film Association took place in Aarhus. Alongside it a scientific conference was held on Perceiving Children. Visual Anthropology of Childhood (the conference was organised by Ditte Marie Seeberg and Rossella Ragazzi). Films presented at the festival dealt with a wide variety of subjects, and not just children, however a number of films shown were about childhood. Amongst others David MacDougall's Gandhi's children (2008) was presented. The report analyses only a small number of films presented, rather the author concentrates on different types of narratives encountered in contemporary anthropological film.
